Biography - Thomas O. Carpenter, MD

Thomas O. Carpenter, MD, has spent his career treating and researching metabolic bone diseases, which are disorders of bone development and strength. These conditions are often genetic in origin, and can also be caused by deficiencies of minerals or vitamin D. As director of the Yale School of Medicine Center for X-Linked Hypophosphatemia, his research focuses on this disorder, the most common inherited form of rickets, caused by low levels of phosphate in the blood. Phosphate is a mineral that is essential for the normal formation of bones and teeth.

“Scientific investigation could make a difference for children suffering from such poorly understood disorders,” says Dr. Carpenter. “Our care of families with metabolic bone diseases is a multidisciplinary approach, including endocrine, orthopedic and physical therapy specialists in a care-coordinated clinic. Moreover we work closely with internal medicine caregivers with similar interests, and provide a well-coordinated transition to adult care and care of adult family members affected with the inherited disorders.

Dr. Carpenter is a professor of pediatrics (endocrinology) and of orthopaedics and rehabilitation at Yale School of Medicine. He has also been recognized by Castle Connolly as a Top Doctor in Connecticut in the field of pediatric endocrinology.
